The MBTA has been having it’s share of problems recently. They are actually going to shut down the entire Orange line for 30 days starting on August 19th so they can make repairs. One of the worst problems was when an Orange Line train caught fire on the Mystic River bridge on July 21st. That Orange line car went into service on January 1, 1981.
Here are some things that are YOUNGER than that Orange Line train!
Chefs Reveal the Top 10 Red Flags to Identify Bad Restaurants
If you listen to the ROR Morning Show, you know that we love to eat and go to great restaurants, So, when I saw this online forum of chefs sharing their “red flags” you should look for that reveal a place is “low quality, I had to share. Now, most of the list are the things you could notice even Before you order anything . So as a public service I present the top 10 red flags you need to know before you go.
What to look for to know the restaurant is bad
Cheap utensils are not a good sign that the meal will be good
Being ignored by the host is a bad sign
Too many unfinished plates are a sign the food is not great and diners gave up on eating
If you can smell the seafood as you walk in the door, then it's not fresh
If the bread is not fresh then it shows you that if they can't get the bread right than they don't care or know anything
If the carpet or floors are dirty, you can be sure the kitchen is too.
A huge menu with lots of pictures means most of the items and ingredients are frozen and not fresh
Dirty restrooms and dirty floors equal dirty kitchens Pee ewwww
If the restaurant has a clean fish tank, than they probably have a clean kitchen, if not, than everything else is probably dirty too.
Bad smells are a sure sign that you need to turn and run out of the place as fast as your feet can carry you!
